British Euro Auto Tour

2014

A number of people have asked Janice and myself what it takes to setup and manage this 17th event. And while I could mention all the meetings we have with City officials, their departments, merchants and vendors. Toss in the phone calls to police departments, fire stations and insurance carriers and we might be getting close to what goes on and why. And all in all the simple reason we continue doing these task is simply for you. The car nut that you are to join with fellow drivers and enthusiast is what drives us to accept the Challenge. Your involvement and desire to get out and about with other drivers is what this event has always been about, so big thanks goes out to all of you and your participation.

We also want to thank some of the businesses and friends that are helping this year. Bob & Penny Branton of C.A.R.S. automotive shop will again this year make available a “chase vehicle” to assist if your vehicle “fails to proceed”. Any parts you utilize from Bob will be at your expense and if your vehicle needs to go onto their trailer it will be towed to the next safe spot going forward on the route. Special this year is the Mercies Benz RV driven by our friends Pete & Diana Normington to follow the chase vehicle to provide any additional comfort. Thanks to Greg & Debbie Nel and their business British Automotive repair as a longtime supporter, be sure and see their ad on the back inside cover. We always appreciate Mike Silverman and the Vintage Motorsports magazines in your goody bag, thanks Mike! Have you ever wondered how the rally book got those great driving instructions and how all the rights & left turns were reviewed? Super Lotus drive lance Johnson is to thanks for driving the route and being sure the instructions are updated. Be sure to use your “BEAT Bucks’ in Prescott for lunch. We’ve got several great restrauants for you to visit and they are looking forward to serving you. Also, be sure to bring your media cards to breakfast Sunday morning to share with the group. Individual car / driver pictures will be taken at Little America, west parking lot at 4:30p this afternoon.
